An ‘Evidentialist’ Worry About Joyce's Argument for Probabilism

Dialectica 66 (3):425-433 (2012)
Abstract
Joyce () argues that for any credence function that doesn't satisfy the probability axioms, there is another function that dominates it in terms of accuracy. But if some potential credence functions are ruled out as violations of the Principal Principle, then some non‐probabilistic credence functions fail to be dominated. We argue that to fix Joyce's argument, one must show that all epistemic values for credence functions derive from accuracy
